I also roll mine
There are cheap tie cases of plastic or leather out thereI think these are worth it since the protect the ties.
If you do not need fancy TP tubes work ok also-but I think it worth the $10 to buy a real case.
You can buy a tie case at most good department stores that carry men's goods. I got one at a Dillards yrs ago.
About 6" wide, 12-14" long, 1/2-1" thick.
Holds lots of ties, sturdy, doesn't take up much space in a suitcase. Keeps 'em in mint condition.
Three options, depending on how many ties and what else I am packing and how space constrained I am.
1. Roll the tie and put it in a shoe. The rolled tie, on its side, will fit perfectly in the heel of the shoe and is completely protected. I usually stuff a pair or two of socks in first, so making full use of the shoe as storage. Put each show in a separate bag - big ziplock or I collect fabric shoe bags from LH C flights. The imposition of a numerical relationship between ties and shoes may not suit everyone.
2. Use an Eagle Creek Pack-it folder. Fold and arrange all shirts in Pack-it. Then lay a tie diagonally across the shirts and wrap around. As many ties as necessary can be crossed over each other. This works great if you are not packing shoes and option 1 is not possible.
3. A folding tie holder, as mentioned before, when I have a voluminous bag that I will check in. But I find they are a little short and unless you take care, you can get a horizontal crease that will be just below the knot. I solve this by folding the tie in half, then folding again to put in the holder, so that the main part of the tie now has a layer beneath it when folded, so less likely to crease.
An as yet unused ultimate option is to switch to bow ties, which pack much more easily, but tend to label one as a bit eccentric, especially in the USA.
Rolling works well. An old boss used to put his in a binder - the kind that hold a legal pad and had a velcro tab holding it shut. It worked, but it seemed too bulky unless you used the binder too (he did).
Coincidently, I saw this article on the front page of the WSJ this morning.
Many American men stopped wearing neckties years ago. Now, even tie guys are giving up on them.
After 60 years, the Men's Dress Furnishings Association, the trade group that represents American tie makers, is expected to shut down Thursday.
Association members now number just 25, down from 120 during the 1980s power-tie era. U.S. tie companies have been consolidating. Others have closed because of overseas competition as the U.S. market share for American-made ties has fallen to about 40%, from 75% in 1995.
Members have lost interest. But the biggest reason for the group's demise: Men aren't wearing ties.
